Outline

“Share Kanazawa” is the town of “Freai” which makes it possible for all people—healthy, disabled, young, and elderly—to enjoy the same quality of life. It has been a while since the idea of normalization appeared. It means healthy and disabled people can live equally. However, it remains a welfare facility which is designed for helping handicapped people in Japan. “Share Kanazawa” works to allow people to work together without barriers. Residents can participate in social, economic, cultural, and mental activities, and they also create and manage their own lives.
